Creative Visualization shows how to use mental imagery and affirmations to produce positive changes in one’s life.
The physical universe is energy
Physically, we are all energy, and everything within and around us is made up of energy.
One law of energy is this: Energy of a certain quality or vibration tends to attract energy of a similar nature.
Thoughts and feelings have their own magnetic energy that attracts energy of a similar nature.
When we are negative and fearful, insecure or anxious, we often attract the very experiences, situations, or people that we are seeking to avoid. If we are basically positive in attitude, expecting and envisioning pleasure, satisfaction, and happiness, we tend to attract and create people, situations, and events that conform to our positive expectations. So, consciously imagining what we want can help us to manifest it in our lives.
The process of change does not occur on superficial levels, through mere “positive thinking.” It involves exploring, discovering, and changing our deepest, most basic attitudes toward life.
It’s important to relax
If you learn to relax deeply and do creative visualization, you may be able to make far more effective changes in your life than you would by thinking, worrying, planning, and trying to manipulate things and people.
It is especially good to do creative visualization at night just before sleeping, or in the morning just after awakening, because at those times the mind and body are already deeply relaxed and receptive.
How to visualize
There are actually two different modes involved in creative visualization. One is receptive, the other is active.
In the receptive mode we simply relax and allow images or impressions to come to us without choosing the details of them; we take what comes.
In the active mode we consciously choose and create what we wish to see or imagine.
Four basic steps for effective creative visualization
- Set your goal. Decide on something you would like to have, work toward, realize, or create.
- Create a clear idea or picture. You should think of it in the present tense as already existing the way you want it to be.
- Focus on it often.
- Give it positive energy.
